Deadpool gets a director

Deadpool gets a director

The much anticipated movie gets a director.

Spinoff is reporting that the long in-talks Deadpool movie has a director, in Tim Miller. Miller was an effects artist on many of Fox's X-Men movies.  Here's the report from Spinoff:

Tim Miller, who worked in visual effects on X-Men and X2,  will make his directorial debut on Fox'sDeadpool, Deadline reports.

The X-Men Origins: Wolverine spinoff, which is expected to star Ryan Reynolds as the merc with a mouth, features an R-rated screenplay by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick that producer Lauren Shuler Donner insists stays true to its comic roots, with Deadpool breaking the fourth wall.

Donner has described the movie as "a total reboot," saying, "We're either going to pretend that X-Men Origins: Wolverine didn't happen, or mock it, which he could do."

Robert Rodriguez had been negotiating to direct Deadpool at one point, with Swedish commercial director Adam Berg emerging as a possibility in October when those talks fell through. However, Miller's name never made the rumor circuit.
